"It wasn’t just the photography, it was the warmth, the love, the kindness. It felt like I was having my photography done by someone I had been friends with for years."

"I feel like thank you isn’t even the right word to express how grateful we are for every single thing you did for us on our wedding day. It wasn’t just the photography. It was the warmth, the love, the kindness. It felt like I was having my photography done by someone I had been friends with for years. I was not expecting to have that kind of bond with a photographer. My family and friends all absolutely love you, and your warmth." - Anthiya, UK
